We may also use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
We will not subject you to a decision based solely on automated processing that produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, unless you explicitly consented to the processing, the processing is necessary for entering into, or performance of a contract between you and Mastercard, or when we are legally required to use your personal data in this way, for example to prevent fraud.
We do not disclose personal data we collect about you, except as described herein or otherwise disclosed to you at the time of the data collection. We do not sell personal data we collect about you, as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act.
Mastercard may transfer personal data to recipients outside of your country. The transfer of personal data outside your country may be subject to restrictions, and Mastercard will take all necessary steps to ensure compliance with applicable data protection law, in particular, the legal requirements on adequate protection for data transfers to countries outside your country. Please note however that the countries which Mastercard transfers the personal data to may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information, and you may not have access to mechanisms to protect the data under the data protection law in that country.
The security of your personal data is important to Mastercard. We are committed to protecting the information we collect. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal data you provide or we collect against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

We also take measures to delete your personal data or keep it in a form that does not permit identifying you when this information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we process it, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of products and services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, possible re-enrolment with our products or services, the impact on the services we provide to you if we delete some information from or about you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.
